About Kayla

4 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My name is Kayla. I live in Matawan, NJ. I have always been an animal lover... Especially dogs! I've spent my life around family pets, friends' dogs, and my own! I have years of experience boarding, fostering, volunteering, walking, some training, and loving dogs! For me, it's a hobby that generates an income.

I live in a townhouse with plenty of space for your dog. My house is always very clean and cozy, with lots of blankets and beds. It's a doggy oasis! Plus you'll receive LOTS of fun pictures while you're gone.

I work from home so I am always around to give your dog plenty of attention & bathroom breaks every 3 hours. My development has a run just a few feet from my front door, so your dog will receive plenty of exercise, should he or she need it.

In the summer months, on nice warm days, I often take the dogs I'm watching to my parents' house in Marlboro for the day so the dogs can swim and play in the pool!

Typically the dogs I board are under 50 pounds; so small pups will feel very comfortable!

I am a member of Pet Sitters International and stay active in the animal care community as a result.

Note: Boarding is a 24 hour period (or less) per night (Dog Vacay policy) If picking up later than drop off time, discounted daycare will be added to reservation.

Kayla did an outstanding job taking care of our 14 year old senior dog with special needs. Her home is beautiful and dog friendly. Kayla was great in keeping in touch with how our dog was doing via photos & texts. Kayla is a very happy and mature young lady. Our dog had a FIVE STAR PLUS STAY under her loving care!
Experience exceeded our expectations. Kayla is a wonderful, caring, and receptive professional. Her home is welcoming, exceptional clean, remarkably, organized, well-laid out to be dog-friendly. Harper's 1st visit included text and photo updates, some time with new friends, great care, plenty of exercise, and a good meal. She was clearly happy to be with Kayla and friends and was quite exhausted when she came home. We will most certainly work with Kayla again and would recommend her very highly!
I had never boarded my puppy and Kayla made me
feel at ease from the moment I spoke to her!
I was sent texts and pictures from her assuring me
that my dog was fine. I would recommend her to
anyone that needed a sitter for there dogs.
She really was the best and I know my puppy
got the best care.
Thank you Kayla for taking amazing care of our Lucy! Kayla has been available last minute to care for her and we appreciate it do much. She is caring and sends adorable pictures. We are so happy we found her!
I recently brought my 1 yo French Bulldog Milo to stay overnight with Kayla. I was nervous because he is energetic and very playful. She put my mind at ease immediately and assured me he would be fine. She took the time to send me updates and pictures of Milo and his new "friends". I would definitely recommend Kayla to anyone looking for a sitter and look forward to using her again in the future!
Kayla watched my puppy Milo this past weekend. I cannot say enough positive things about her. I was nervous at first, but she put me at ease immediately. She truly loves animals and she is very responsive and genuinely cares about your pet. I would hands down recommend her to anyone. I will absolutely trust her with my dog again!!
Kayla is amazing! She really saved us. Our two dogs were at another dog vacay host while we were away and it was not working out at all - the dog vacay team helped us find Kayla who was able to take them in on short notice. She made us feel so comfortable - sending us updates and photos letting us know that the dogs were fine. Kayla, we can't thank you enough for what you did! You really are an amazing host!
I can't say it enough, Kayla is great! She took care of Lucy for us so we could stay an extra day in the city. She sent adorable pictures and made sure our Lucy was taken care of. So happy with my experience!
Kayla is amazing! We needed her last minute for our little Pomeranian, Lucy, and she saved the day! I highly recommend her services. We'll be using her again soon. 5 stars!!
Sadie loved being with Kayla! Kayla is very sweet and loves having the dogs over. She treated Sadie like her own. Will definitely be hiring her again :)
We love Kayla!! She's just the BEST. I am so happy I have somewhere to leave my grandmother's little dog Petey that is warm, clean, and cozy. Petey loves her and we love her! We get the cutest pictures while he's there. I wouldn't leave him anywhere else.
Kayla is the best!!!! I am so happy we found her and so are our pooches ??????We can't wait for Chloe, Cody & Benny to go on another DogVacay!
I'm so happy we found Kayla!! She's the best of the best. I can't get over how lovely her house is and how much Petey LOVES her!

My grandmother can't really leave her little chihuahua alone for more than about 30 minutes (he has bad separation anxiety) so she watched Petey for us the past couple of days. She was so great with him.
Send photo and contact us everyday, care pet like a kid
Kayla is amazing! I left my grandmother's little chihuahua with her last minute for daycare and she was so accommodating. She sent the cutest pictures of him sleeping on the couch and playing with the other dogs. Her house is spotless and clean... it's beautiful! I'm so happy we finally found someone who I can trust him with
Loved Kayla. My dog was so happy. Very clean great environment and loving person.
Kayla is great! We highly recommend her. She was highly recommended to us by our friends. We will definitely use her again!
Our puppy Ziggy has a wonderful time with Kayla. She was very caring and attentive. We felt very comfortable leaving our puppy in Kayla's capable hands. Would definitely use Kaylas services again.
Kayla is great with Bella. Bella loves her. Highly reccommended.
I love love love that Kayla is available last minute! She is so sweet and we love using her. I highly recommend her dog walking and boarding
Kayla is a dog sitter she was amazing with tiger who needs to be hand fed and she's the first dog sitter to feed him and keep him happy. Overall a great experience very professional and we will use Kayla every time we are out of town !
Kayla was great. Very clean place. Put us at ease right away.
Kayla is wonderful. She came over today and even helped us with our moving boxes! I wish we could bring her to Texas with us but we plan on using her every time we visit. My Roxy adores her!
I highly recommend Kayla. My dogs had such a good time they didn't want to come homeKayla sent pictures every day which helped to ease any worries. I definitely plan to use her services again.
My dog LOVED kayla and was exhausted from the walk they went on. I definitely plan on using her whenever I need someone to check on my furbaby. My neighbor loved kayla as well!
Kayla was wonderful! Made my Jax feel right at home. I was very comfortable leaving him with her. Excellent! Thanks Kayla!
Kayla was great with my high stressed dog. She sent updates and kept me informed throughout the stay. I would definitely use Kayla again!
Our dog Sadie has been to visit and sleepover Kayla's quite a few times now. Kayla always sends us pictures to let us know how much fun Sadie's having. Playing with other dogs, swimming in her parents pool or out for a walk. Sadie always comes home happy and thoroughly exhausted from her visit. We feel very confident that Sadie is in good caring hands. We can't thank Kayla enough for that peace of mind.
Kayla was super friendly my Tasha was very happy there. will defiantly go back :-)
My husband and I used Kayla's dog boarding services for the first time over the 4th of July weekend. We were not going to be out of town but had multiple family events and didn't want to leave our dog home alone for very long, extended periods of time. Saying Kayla was great is an understatement. I booked the appointment a little last minute and she was able to accommodate me. She suggested a meet and greet before the drop off and, although her profile and reviews had already sold me that she was fantastic, the meet and greet just won me over. Throughout my pup's stay Kayla sent me updates on how she was doing as well as adorable pictures. This is not only the first time I used Kayla's services but the Dog Vacay app as well and now I won't book with anyone else but Kayla when using the app.
Teddy stayed with Kayla over the past 4th of July weekend. He's never stayed with anyone outside of the family so we were a bit nervous, but he was a happy camper. Kayla made him feel at home as soon as he got there and kept us updated with text updates and pictures. She was also very easy to deal with and flexible since we were late in both dropping and picking up without any issue. Thanks Kayla!
Ella had never stayed overnight with someone she didn't know, so we were pretty anxious puppy parents going into this. Kayla was super accommodating and made Ella feel at home. She sent us lots of photo updates so we knew how Ella was doing and was able to manage her energy and! Can't wait to use Kayla again. Thank you!
Kayla is amazing!! She's fantastic, and so accommodating. My dog Huey adores her. She is sweet and kind!
Kayla...Was definitely great... She texted me pictures of my dog playing all day... She had a great personality clean environment I would definitely use her again... Thank you so much
We love Kayla!! She took care of my Snowball when I needed a last minute walk. I had to work late and hate leaving Snowball home for hours and hours without a walk so I was so glad she was available last minute to do a walk. She sent the most adorable pictures! Thanks again Kayla!!!
This was our second time leaving Logan with Kayla overnight and it was absolutely wonderful. He is a big guy and really energetic and Kayla is amazingly great with him. Although it was difficult to leave him for 6 nights, Kayla sent pictures and videos the entire time and totally made us feel completely comfortable and at ease knowing she was taking such good care of him. Thanks again Kayla!!
Kayla was fantastic. My concern was my grumpy old 13 year old Beagle but he adapted and looked happy.
I used Kayla again and I am very impressed with her services! She is so professional but also caring for my dog at the same time. She sent me the sweetest pictures today which made me feel better about leaving him all day! I work a lot and hate leaving him behind but feel much better knowing Kayla stops in to spend some time with him while I am gone. I had a few concerns about his behavior recently and she was nice enough to call me to talk about it as well and help me figure out a solution! I highly recommend her. She is my go to girl for doggy care!
Kayla is great! She took great care of my Yorkie! She sent the cutest pictures of him. Thanks Kayla!
Kayla took great care of my pup! My dog had so much fun! We loved the pictures and updates. She even gave us some homemade grain-free treats to take home :) We definitely will use her again!
Excellent stay!
This was the very first time our 1 year old Lab Logan has ever been away from home over night. The time, attention, and patience Kayla had for him made this an easy and fun experience. Kayla is great! She kept us updated the whole time with pictures and texts. I would highly recommend her and have already made plans to use her again. Knowing Logan is with Kayla makes leaving him so much easier!!
Kayla is the best! Snowball loves going to her house for daycare :) :) :)
What a great experience! My dog snowball is a very shy chihuahua but he just loved his time with Kayla. She really went above and beyond during his daycare yesterday. He had lots of quality time with Matzo! She had so many snuggly blankets and toys everywhere for the dogs. Her house was so warm and cozy. I’m so glad I found someone who I can leave snowball with for daycare and boarding without having to worry or feel bad while I’m gone. I highly recommend her!
Kayla was available last minute and a huge help with Coop! He absolutely LOVES her !!!!!!!!
We had a great experience with Kayla. She has a beautiful clean home. Our dog seemed very happy there. Kayla communicated with us during the entire time she was watching our dog, by texting and sending pictures everyday. I would highly recommend Kayla to anyone looking for a dog sitter in the area.
Kayla made our first time using dog vacay a great experience! Coops tail was wagging non stop when we went to pick him up :) Her house is beautiful and clean. We will definitely be using her the next time we need a sitter. A+++
Great as usual!
Kayla was great! She was available last minute which was amazing when I needed her to watch my dog. She took great care of him. We love her! I would definitely recommend her!
Kayla - "thank you very much"! Really appreciate the time and attention you paid to Ony - she loved her stay with you. I'm glad we've found someone else that we trust leaving our dog with! Graham & Louise
